西奧多西婭和海盜

西奧多西婭伯爾阿爾斯於1812年12月31日登上愛國者號船,從來就再沒有人見過她。她是淹死在海裡了呢還是被海盜抓去了?過去200年有很多關於這件事的推測。在這個歷史愛情故事中,西奧多西婭和強悍的船長讓·拉菲特一起並肩與英國以及腐敗的聯邦官員還有路易斯安那州的政府官員們戰鬥。雖然新奧爾良之戰和對英國的戰爭很大程度上都是由於拉菲特的貢獻而贏得,可是在一次遠征西班牙的時候搶了西奧多西婭的父親伯爾的船和物資供應的同一支腐敗的政府力量,卻把讓·拉菲特拉菲特的船隻和貨沒收了。亞歷山大·漢密爾頓創建的國稅局,更熱衷於對公民徵稅,而不是與敵人進行戰鬥。海軍派軍艦攻擊獨立私艦,使國家面對侵略者無力抵抗。儘管這樣,拉菲特還是提供火藥,打火石和訓練有素的特殊砲兵部隊,幫助安德魯·傑克遜將軍打敗英國。而麥迪遜總統卻只給了他一個空頭赦免。伯爾能夠讓總統改變想法嗎?抑或拉菲特和西奧多西婭將被迫從西班牙拿錢資助他們進一步的冒險?一個男人和一個女人之間的愛情是什麼?激情和慾望比尊敬和愛戴更重要嗎?什麼是愛國主義?戰爭的費用如何支付?我們能不能愛一個擯棄我們的國家,與此同時又厭棄另一個愛我們的國家?請閱讀’西奧多西婭和海盜’你會得出答案。   Goodreads Book Giveaway Theodosia and the Pirates by Aya Katz Giveaway ends July 21, 2013.
